Anafi island lies in the heart of the Aegean Sea and belongs to the Cyclades island group. It may be located very close to the superstar Cycladic island of Santorini, but it has a different style from its neighbor.
Anafi is a little, laid back island that has managed to stay off the radar and not be blighted by overdevelopment.

The island's beaches are scenic! Shingle or sandy, they always reward the visitor with calming moments by the sea. The most popular beaches, such as Agios Nikolaos and Klisidi, are located near the port, where also many hotels lie.

One of the best things about the island is that everything is within walking distance of the main town. Therefore, it’s pretty easy to visit more beaches and explore the island at your own pace!

Built on the slopes of high mountains, on an altitude of 200 meters, Chora, the island’s capital, boasts a unique natural landscape and a mesmerizing view to the Aegean sea. Chora is the center of the island’s activity, as most of the island’s restaurants, bars and facilities can be found there.
In the main town, you’ll also discover many hidden natural secrets, such as caves, natural footpaths, and spots with a breathtaking view of the Aegean sea!

In addition to its charming town, volcanic cliffs and lovely beaches, other places of interest worth a visit include a few chapels located here and there.

The extraordinary natural setting of the island combined with its relaxing atmosphere have made it a popular camping destination!
Other accommodation options include traditional apartments & luxury villas or suites.

Keeping its traditional identity and tranquil aura, Anafi is a go-to destination for those who’d like to enjoy laid back holidays in a remote Aegean paradise!
